On The Road Again

Some of you may not know that my mom is fighting for her life. She was diagnosed with Leukemia 6 months ago and has been living in the hospital receiving aggressive chemotherapy and full body radiation. I have been going to California about every 3-4 weeks to be with my mom. This trip is extra important because she will be receiving a bone marrow transplant that will hopefully cure her from this HORRIBLE Disease. She is very weak and hardly able to talk but has an amazing attitude and strength about her. I will not be doing any postings while I am there. If any of you wouldn't mind keeping my mom, Jeanelle in your thoughts and prayers she and I would be so grateful. Talk to you in a week with hopefully great news!

Enjoy all my fellow Ogonians!

Oregonians live for the days of sunshine. They might be few and far between but when the sun decides to grace us with its presence something happens. I see neighbors outside that have been in hibernation, people get to wear shorts which some should invest in some tanning sessions before showing off those pearly whites and people are truly in this euphoric state.

Bargain Tuesdays!

I love these Ikat pillows from Pier 1 imports. They are on sale for 17 bucks and they also come in brown and cream. I saw pillows really similar for 50.00 at a store that starts with...
Hint...Pottery _____.

If you know me at all you know I think mirrors make great artwork in the home. I love this mirror from Pier One Imports that goes for only 39.00. That is a deal if you have been looking for something similar. I can see this above a bed or in an entry way.

I love the round shape of this basket from Pier One. You can never have too many baskets. It is really sturdy and I think it would be perfect to put on the floor in a bathroom with magazines in. It is a great buy at 9 bucks!

Come'n knock on my door

The entry way to your home is oober important. It is the first impression to the inside of your home. My own entry way is my favorite thing/room in my house. What an impression these entryways make!

Bargin Tuesday's

As I have come into my style I realize I have expensive taste! I would much rather hold out for a couch that is expensive and save for it rather than buy a cheap sub that doesn't make my heart beat as fast. But sometimes when coming to accessories for the home I like to replicate expensive looks for DEALS!!!!!!!!! I have found that certain stores, websites and a bit of rummaging always pays off. So...I decided to fill you all in on some deals every Tuesday. You never know it might be exactly what you are looking for!


These adorable old fashion outdoor chairs are a great find at only $30 at Lowes. They come in green or blue. I heart them. When we got married I registered for a chair set VERY similar at Restoration Hardware for embarrassingly so so so much more. So if you like these buy them fast because they are really popular. I heard they also have them on the website.
